There are few things more satisfying than being the very best in the world at something. And in the go-go modern age, it’s possible to become the world champion of something that didn’t even exist a few years ago. (I’m convinced that the vast majority of iPad games were built by people who just wanted to enter their initials in their games’ Global Ten List.) Today, Lady Gaga reaffirmed her status as the World’s Most Followed Tweeter by crossing the 25 million threshold. That’s about 2.5 million more than her closest competitor, Canadian superteen and greaser Boyfriend Justin Bieber.
“#25milliontweetymonsters wow! I’m officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today. Last sold out show in Singapore in 2 hrs!” tweeted the world’s most popular drama geek. In no time at all, the pop star was refocused on her usual blend of observational comedy. “Can you believe that freakin bird is still outside my room whistling! I feel like he’s auditioning,” tweeted Gaga. Just to provide some context, 2 million people watched Mad Men on Sunday, 20 million people watched the American Idol finale, and 25 million people know that there is a bird chirping outside of Lady Gaga’s Singapore hotel room.
